Language made Crystal clear,
By A Customer
This review is from: The English Language: A Guided Tour of the Language (Paperback)
A non-fiction book I couldn't put down! David Crystal, with his reputation as a linguistics guru, presents a remarkably accessible and entertaining jolly into the background of the english language. It would have been so easy to blind us with science and technical terms but this book engages you throughout. The English language belongs to us all and the book certainly made me both feel that and make me want to delve a bit deeper ... in fact: I've just placed an order for another of his books!

Then why did you make reservation and graded 4 stars, not 5? David Crystal's books are all worthy of 5 stars!
